Embed a product Listing on external site
« on: August 05, 2015, 08:07:21 PM »
Hi,

First time user, first time poster.....

So far, I have been using OpenCart 1.5, I upgraded to 2.0 and it is fairly buggy at the best of times. So I tried a few other carts in demo mode and I chose AbanteCart, purely because the admin interface is great to look at and work with. Then I noticed this embed code feature...

So I click the get embed icon on a product listing and it spits our the code, of which I copy and paste into my main website. Assuming it was that easy - it didn't work. I get a blank space. Having this sort of embedding feature is something that I have wanted to achieve on my main website for quiet some time. So, working this out would be pretty awesome.

I have searched the forum and found only 1 relevant post about embedding, and that was not helpful. Does anyone out there know why this feature is not working for me?

Thanks
Brendan

just guessing here -  but it generates html code.  When you use it on your main website -  in the editor you use there
be sure you are in SOURCE to paste the html.

it's really easy to forget to check that detail :)

My testing of the embed seems to have worked flawlessly every time.

If this is the solution - please post back.

Please share link we will try to help you. Take a note if you use demo products some of them have minimum ordered items more than 1. So if you add to cart products like this in cart will be 2 or 3 items.

If share directly Facebook doesn't allow scripts and HTML tags but possibly you can try facebook iFrame Application
